Life is Beautiful, by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi, another journal page for me to share.

Acrylic paint on the background with the Pod Stacks Stencil popped on there in black.

I’ve also used the Starstruck Stamp on my background with a little gesso.

The Little Poppets Transparency has been painted with white gesso on the back and a Paper Crown has been painted and trimmed to fit the poppets head.

The title has been cut from the Family Kraft Words.  Under this is some trim cut from Happy Houses by Michelle Logan.  The heart above the title has also been cut from this.

Hi Everyone!

For this project I used a little wooden canvas panel and a few Scrap FX goodies.

Segment Circles stencil

Ladders Stencil

Little Poppets Transparency

Grunginess Collage

I also used some acrylic paints, gel matte medium, stamps, archival ink, glue and a few of  my favourite die cuts.

I started by picking a couple of great rice papers, I ripped a piece off and applied it to the wood panel with gel matte medium.
I then cut out one of the cute poppets and put her on a piece of white card stock with gel matte.

I went to town adding some paint to the wood panel with stencils and in some cases just with my finger. lol
I also added a few library card stamps for pattern and contrast with black archival ink.

while that was drying I grabbed a few die cuts that are some of my favs, one from altenew, one from paper roses and one from simon says stamp.
The circle rays and rainbow. I also grabbed a piece of old painted paper that was left as a frame and figured I’d use it up.
I assembled how I thought it might go together. I added some paint to the poppet, her crown that I had stamped and coloured the rainbow.

and then I glued it all down and added a quote with my label maker. Isn’t she a freaking ray of sunshine?!?! 🙂

Keep well everyone!

Hi friends!

Lisa today for Scrap FX design team and I’m happy to share with you my new art journal inspiration with collage papers, stamps and paper silhouette!

To start I glued some pieces of Scrap FX collage paper to add more interest in the background.

Then I brushed some acrylic paints leaving white spaces.

I made some circles stamps with teal archival ink.

After that I cut some embellishments from paper and foil products and I made splatters with white liquid paint.

I hope you enjoyed my art journal inspiration with Scrap FX products!

Hugs,

Creating the ScrapFX junk journal

by Claire Stead | 0 comments

Hi!

I really have no clue where this year is going! It’s disappearing so fast!

I’m here with a fun post, playing with the new Scrap FX Junk Journal and then creating a fun, colourful cover.

The junk journal is full of lovely Kraft substrates, all different sizes, textures and some are patterned too.

It’s super easy to put together- the cover is made from corrugated card, I chose to put the corrugated part facing inside. To create the cover I chose a warm colour palette and finger painted rose type shapes on the whole cover. Then I used the Take your time stencil and one of the chipboard women from the  Corrugated women and Co pack.

Check out the process video to see how I put the journal together and then decorated the cover, click on the image below to head straight to the Scrap FX YouTube channel.

Here is a list of the ScrapFx goodies I used in this project

Thanks for looking- I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did!!

Scrappin up a storm- Chrissi M

by Chrissi Mannix | 0 comments

Hello Lovelies

Since getting back into my art room, I have been scrapping up a storm. I have 2 layouts to share with you today.

In my first layout, I have made my background using thick swipes of paint, and then some of my favourite stamps in black paint. I love adding bright colours with bold black details in my background for contrast.

This was a rather simply embellished layout- focusing alot on the mixed media background. I added a chipboard fram to highlight my photo and added a small cluster in one corner.

For second layout, I decided to play with spray ink and a stencil for my background, But probably not in the way you’re thinking.

One of my favourite ways to use a stencil, is to spray it with ink, and then stamp it onto my background. It’s a great way to get extra use out of your stencil.

I used two complimentry colours of ink to spray my stencil, then stamp it onto my card stock. I adore how this turned out- and this stencil is absolutely fabulous. Then I came in with those favourite stamps of mine again, this time with matching coloured paint, to add interest to my background.

Products Used

Number Party Stencil

Ripples Stencil

Crosses & Strokes Stamp

Crazy Circles Stamp

In & Out Circles Stamp

Triangle Collage Stamp

I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from my layouts

Happy Scrappin

Let Your Dreams be your Wings….

by Tanya Froud | 0 comments

Hi Guys.

Popping in with an art journal page I recently created,

I was a bit down and felt I needed to lift my spirits with some bright colours. I started out with an ugly “clean it up page” in my journal and I matched the colours of my acrylic paints to what was already there. (the messy base clean it up was glossy acrylic prays so it was permanent as it had dried)

I then grabbed literally anything and everything and just played, a scrape of paint here a dab through a stencil there, I really just used this page to switch my mind off. I also stencilled the moth stencil in the centre of the page with black ink.

I hen grabbed a heavy weight sheet of white card and scrapped and dabbed the same color acrylic paints on to the card and let dry fully, before tracing the moth stencil onto it and filling the details in black paint and let dry. I then fussy cut it out and attached it the page in the center of the moth stencil so it lines up.

It was finished off with the quote cut from the collage paper.

Products used….

Segment Circles stencilcircle segment stencil

Majestic Moth stencilmajestic moth stencil

Scribble Script stencil scribble script stencil

I painted the back of the moth black and used the space to journal thoughts and feeling at the time of the page being made.

That’s it from me, until next time….

 

Sweet Life, by Chantale

Hi Scrap Fx fans,

Today, I present to you a layout with a picture of my summer favorite position.

I love summer, why was I not born in a warm country?

I started by doing my background with spray, I used dots stamp and I finally glued some rice paper.

I wanted to have black and white flowers, so I used stamp with black ink on white paper. I love the result.

I think I will use this wonderful flower regularly in the futur.

Last step, add a few ornaments and I must say, I love love the final result.

For this creation, I used these beautiful goodies:

 

Junk Journal by KarenJ

Hi ScrapFX fans

 

KarenJ with you today with a journal page. Have you seen brand new Kraft Junk Journal? It is absolutely awesome and I couldn’t wait to start creating! If you have been following along with me this year I have been working on an 8×8 album all about me and I think this will compliment things nicely. The album tends to have photo’s and I think I will keep this one to a true art journal and just have some fun.

The journal comes with instructions and twine to bind it together which is super easy to understand so there is no excuses to get started. I had so many ideas running through my head I decided to keep this one simple. Of course I needed to use the new Heart Girl collage paper by Claire Stead, it is so gorgeous. I fussy cut out the hearts and quote.

A mixed media art journal page, “Heart Girl” by Danni

by Danielle Scholz | Comments Off on A mixed media art journal page, “Heart Girl” by Danni

Hello lovelies,

Dannii here with a very quick project in my ScrapFX junk journal for September. Using minimal supplies and showcasing the very new, and awesome rice paper heart girl designed by Claire Stead.
This rice paper is awesome for focal points, titles and collage elements.

I had full intentions of using stamps, loads of stencils and at least another collage paper. Which were all out and ready to use, but once my background was painted the other elements just weren’t needed.

Here’s a look at the finished project –

As you can see the page is filled with the rice paper elements and a little bit of mark making in the background. I did use a ScrapFX stencil on the background called hearty stencil which just coordinates well with the design. I also just for fun added a couple of quirky rainbows just because I was using Claire’s papers 😁 I am sure she would agree it was a finishing element to the page.

As usual I have a video tutorial on this project on the ScrapFX YouTube Channel which you can view here:

Here are the ScrapFX products I used in this project

 

 

 

The Tribe…..By Belinda Lowe

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

Happy Saturday, wishing you a scrappy happy weekend

My turn on the blog today, and I have a layout to share with you, I hope you like it.

I have created these using the following products – Heart Explosion Stencil, Homegrown (Made by Me), Chickenwire Frame Large, Geometry Collage, Segment Circles Stamp, Kisses and Hearts Stamp and The Tribe

     

 

Here are some close ups

  

I would also like to share with you how I put the background together

First of all I used the Segment circles stamp with spray ink, painted it onto the stamp and then onto my layout

I then tore the Geometry Collage, adhered it to the middle and used the same technique as above with the Kisses and Heart Stamp

Using Texture Paste (Colour Blast Snow White) and the Heart Explosions Stencil – it dries clear and shimmery

 

I cut out the Chickenwire frame and then embossed with 2 different colours

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your new and old Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases

Happy Scrappy Days!!!
